English term or phrase: burn-through range
Definition from army-technology.com:
The burn-through range is the range at which a radar can detect targets through external interference (usually jamming).

Example sentence(s):
  • The system produces very high effective radiative power on inbound targets minimizing their burn through range until they can no longer adjust their flight path to hit the ship robotechresearch.com
  • One of the limits of Jamming that few people are aware of is called "Burn Through Range. Burn Through Range is the point at which the plane's Radar Signature become too large to hide behind a jammer of a given strength and the aircraft can once again be tracked on radar. abovetopsecret.com
  • An electronic defeat, targets the host radar to lose the lock on its target and therefore is unable to pass the required information to the missile. This can be achieved in multiple ways. The easiest way is to have a powerful electronic attack (EA) capability. A jammer pod would be a good option for that, at least to a point outside the burn-through range of the targeting radar.

Definition from own experience or research:
Genombrottsavståndet är det avstånd inom vilken en radar kan upptäcka mål trots externa störningar.

Example sentence(s):
  • Om däremot plattformen är utrustad med en brusstörare måste hänsyn tas till genombrottsavstånd, dvs om radarekot vinner över störningen i radarmottagaren. - Totalförsvarets forskningsinstitut  

Seems logical to me. If used by the army researchers, I see no reason to invent anything else.
